CITROËN C4 SPACETOURER AND GRAND C4 SPACETOURER : MORE DRIVING PLEASURE AND MORE COMFORT WITH THE EAT8 AUTOMATIC GEARBOX!
Citroën is revealing the prices for new C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer range, now offering the new EAT8 automatic gearbox paired with the BlueHDi 160. The brand is also confirming that it has dropped the Picasso name in favour of the SpaceTourer name, from the first deliveries in May. A unique signature to identify modern and complementary products that can transport 5 to 9 people by offering an enhanced design, a unique experience of comfort and latest-generation technologies and engines. C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer strengthen themselves with the introduction of the BlueHDi 160 S&S diesel engine, the first to be paired with the new EAT8 automatic gearbox. With this pairing, C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer offer greater driving comfort and simplicity, and even better performance. The order books for Citroën C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer BlueHDi 160 S&S EAT8 are already open in France, with prices starting at €33,850.
A NEW SIGNATURE: C4 SPACETOURER AND GRAND C4 SPACETOURER
Along with this new pricing, the Brand is officially adopting the new “SpaceTourer” name, which will replace “Picasso”. This unique new “SpaceTourer” signature, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, allows us to present a global offer comprising 3 MPVs (including SpaceTourer) that complete our range of hatchbacks and SUVs, and symbolizes the spaciousness, the ingenuity and the limitless escape. Modern, user-friendly and family-oriented products that allow drivers and passengers to travel in unique comfort, these cars offer an enhanced design, as well as latest-generation technologies and engines.
Both C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer benefit from Citroën’s know-how in terms of style, roominess, modularity, versatility and well-being on board. Such qualities that have already attracted more than 500,000 customers and allow to be the leader of the segment in some markets. Based on the EMP2 platform, they incorporate useful technologies aimed at guaranteeing a high level of safety and everyday comfort while offering remarkable dynamism and efficiency.
INTRODUCTION OF THE EAT8 GEARBOX: THE BEST PERFORMANCE / COMFORT TRADE-OFF
With these two MPVs, the Brand is presenting the full range of its expertise in terms of engines. A major highlight of the spring will be the arrival of the latest-generation EAT8 automatic gearbox in C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer range. Initially paired with the BlueHDi 160 S&S diesel engine, the EAT8 automatic gearbox will be paired with other engines later in the year.
Designed and developed in collaboration with the Japanese specialist Aisin, this eight-speed “Efficient Automatic Transmission” gearbox (with steering wheel blades to allow for manual gear changes), is both intuitive and easy to use. It offers even more efficiency and everyday comfort, with:
- Reduced fuel consumption of up to 7% compared to the EAT6 thanks to the two additional gears, better output with the extension of Stop & Start up to 20 km/h and improvements in terms of weight and compactness (up to 2kg compared to the EAT6)
- Improved driving comfort and smoother shifting of gears made possible by optimised exchanges of torque between the engine and gearbox; the transition to eight speeds helps reduce the jump between gears at each gear shift.
The Citroën C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer range, inspired by its customers and their automotive experience, will see its road-going qualities strengthened with this new engine offer, which provides a tailored solution for every driver! This new engine, which meets the Euro 6.2 standard (and will replace the 150 EAT6 unit) is available for C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer models at the following prices (in France):
- C4 SPACETOURER BlueHDi 160 S&S EAT8 Feel: 33 850 euros
